Harry Redknapp is braced for a tough run-in that he knows Spurs must navigate in order to make it ‘a campaign to remember.’

Spurs remain in fourth place currently, as well as facing an FA Cup semi-final against Portsmouth and are in pole position to clinch a place in next season’s Champions League.

However, they will have to navigate through a sequence of games against the top three, Arsenal and Chelsea at home before a trip to Manchester United.

And Redknapp is relishing the challenge of those fixtures and hopes he can steer Spurs to success.

“It is going to be a tough week.

“We play Portsmouth in the semi-final on the Sunday, then we have got Arsenal on the Wednesday, then Chelsea on the Saturday.

“It is not ideal, but they are good games.

“At this stage of the season, to be in the cup semi-final and a chance of finishing fourth – you could not ask for more than that.

“We have been in great form, with something like 17 points from the last eight league games.

“If you get an average of two points a game, you are doing a miracle.

“Man United are top of the form table, with two-and-a-half points a game, but we’ll keep going and see what happens.

“We do look at the form tabels and the fixtures of other teams around us all the time, but you never know because this league is so hard and everybody is scrapping points.

“West Ham have to play Liverpool and Man City yet – and there will be some shocks before the end of the season.”
